    Both are right.

    What a CD/RW allows you to do is reformat it, then burn the new Rescue Media instead of having to throw away the old CD and burn a new one.

    Even after a CD-RW is "finalized", you can still format/erase it and use it again. You just can't add files to the files that are already on it after it's been finalized. So in other words, burn the rescue cd. Then when a new version comes out, format/erase the CD-RW and burn the rescue cd using the new version.

    Exactly. This way you don't end up with a pile of CD/R coasters.

    Thank you both I have never used a RW disk as I understood they were not reliable

    Will give it a try after burning two cds in the attempt to get mouse support in the boot disk of the new build 786

    RWs tend to be less reliable then Rs which are also not perfect. Using a packet writer (drive letter access, InCD etc.) brings out the worst in them. A session mastered RW, written only a few times, should be pretty reliable and is great for debugging.
